Coconut Cream Pie Cookie Cups

Coconut Cream Pie Cookie Cups - the perfect bite size combination of two classic desserts — coconut cream pie and sugar cookies!

My husband has been watching the Olympics the last few nights so I have been trying to keep myself busy. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy parts of it — like gymnastics, I could watch them all day long — but I am perfectly happy to not watch swimming again.

So to keep myself busy, I have been baking. First up? Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Muffins…because I absolutely can not wait any longer to start eating everything Pumpkin. Then today, I used up some extra coconut I had stashed away and made these Coconut Cream Pie Cookie Cups. And they are SO DANG GOOD.

Y’all know how obsessed I have been with everything coconut lately. These bite size Coconut Cream Pie Cookie cups are just a continuation of that obsession.

First you make a sugar cookie cup, which is really easy if you use a mini muffin tin. All you have to do is whip up the dough and press it into the mini muffin indent. Bake them for 8 minutes and they are ready for cooling!

The pie filling is a family recipe that I love so very much. It takes about 10 minutes to make and has the perfect coconut flavor with bites of actual coconut mixed in.

Recipe Tip: If you are looking to make a traditional coconut cream pie, double the filling for this recipe and pour it into a baked pie crust. Top it with fresh whipped cream and toasted coconut and you have the best coconut cream pie ever!
